Grasshopper Sparrow

By gregster09
These grassland sparrows are funny characters, and hard to locate with their thin, buzzy song. It took me several evenings to finally take this image, in the last few minutes of light.

Amazing. The most I've seen of these guys before was a distant brown speck on the horizon. (IDed by call)

He's chirping at the top of his lungs!

Nice image, it's very difficult to catch tiny birds in good positions, because they won't stop moving.
